Game Design and Development with Unity 2020 Specialization
In this completely revised 2021 version of the Specialization, learners build the skills necessary to design and development games. The Specialization focuses on both the theory and practice of game making. From a technical standpoint, learners create four game projects in the latest Unity 2020 game engine, include a 2D Shooter, 2D Platformer, First-Person Shooter, and 3D Platformer. In the Capstone Project, learners create a completely original game of their own design from initial concept up to the first playable prototype. Learners build a solid foundation for industry roles as a game designer, level designer, technical designer, technical artist, programmer, and/or producer.
